PAS: What was the first vehicle you ever owed? Did you modify it? If so, what modifications were performed?

Owner: HaHa man a 1994 Nissan Sentra. of course i tried to modify it I did some basic audio work adding subs and stepping it up to a cd player, then removed my interior pieces and sanded them down and painted them white (not a good idea without clearcoats after) then I wanted to do a kit but there was none offered for my car so i found one for an Extreme Dimensions kit for a 91 Accord since the dimensions were the same.

PAS: What is your dream car? Why?

Owner: I've always been big on Nissans since my first car was a Nissan, so Nissan Skyline of course. More Specifically R33 400R, or R34 GT-R V-spec II Nür. Growing up in America I've always wanted to own a real Skyline like most other tuners but wasn't given many chances. I even ordered one before and had it shipped to Canada and went to pick it up, saw it and everything. Only to be told I could not bring it across the U.S. border and by the time I was able to go back and pick it up was told it had been sold even though i still had the paperwork. So I still hold onto my real Skyline dreams not that new toned down American version.

PAS: Any Shout-outs?

Owner: My parents, the 12v Spotlight team,Miss Lynna and Lynna's Lovelies,Kaori Ann, Xtreme Concepts, Team Downeshift (first team based LGBT/LGBT friendly).

Owner: Multiple Car Shows and Stereo Competitions ranging from New Jersey, Indianapolis, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, to our home state of North Carolina, and most notably SEMA 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada

PAS: What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

Owner: Not into the performance with this one, we would like to upgrade to 22’s in the back for more tuckage, I think that is a word, thinking about a black and white tattoo mural of a real life mermaid on the center of the hood. We think it would go with the aquarium/underwater theme we have going on the inside and in the trunk.

PAS: Any Shout-outs?

Owner: I would like to give thanks to my wife Lynda, our sons William and Carlton, Jeff Cayton, Brandon Poirer, Daniel Krepps, Shane Clements, and all our friends and family who have helped and supported us on this 16 year endeavor.

PAS: How long have you been a car enthusiast?

Owner: I would say when I turned 5 years old my parents bought me my own power wheels Jeep and I rocked it out till I could no longer ride it blew off 4 sets of plastic tires lol. I even took a real floor jack and would raise it in the air to think I was working on something lol.

PAS: What is your dream car? Why?

Owner: Now when I turned 10 years old my dream cars where a 3000GT VR4, Supra and a NSX I got this one later when I turned 24 years old I bought this 3000GT VR4 and totally stole it from the guy that was selling it lol. You will have to ask me how much I bought the car it totally was worth it J. Will I would like to have to be is Lambo or a Dodge Viper. I have always loved both cars and they are both super sexy style on the body lines.
